My work originates from my experience with reading and writing and how dyslexia has shaped this. When learning to read as a child, I found that the shape of words were often blurred and would jump across the page. Repetition, copying, highlighting, and the perception of textual shape and form were some of the coping strategies I used to overcome difficulty and access meaning.
Much of my recent work draws form these strategies and my paintings now often feature shapes, symbols and diagrams that stand in for something unreadable and unknown.
